D is for Durian

D is for that fruit that I truly miss — Durian!

Durian, if you don’t know it, is a fruit that is somewhat thorny on the outside, smells weird(if it’s your first time to smell it) and taste like heaven. Well, not for everyone, I know a lot of people who doesn’t like the smell and the taste of this fruit. As for me, who grow up where this fruit is accessible learned to love this fruit.

Walking in the grocery and looking at those two-seed package of Durian that cost around 150PHP (3 USD), makes me wanna grab the next airplane ride home, though I really don’t like plane. In Davao, a whole Durian would cost you lesser than in any other place because it’s the “Durian Capital of the Philippines”. During Kadayawan festival, one of the main attraction of the city, Durian are a little bit cheaper than the usual because it’s the season of the fruit. Durian is a must-taste when you go visit the city.

I totally miss eating Durian at home.

  1. I visited Malaysia for a short while, where the hotel we stayed in said no Durians were allowed! I did not venture out to taste the fruit, since a lot of people warned me about the smell. Your blog tells me it tastes heavenly though! I will try it next time around!

    • A lot of airport won’t allow you to bring this fruit if you won’t put it in a sealed container. In the process of loving this fruit, getting over the smell is the first step. Hehe. See yah around! Thanks for the visit!

  3. “Strange” is a much more accurate description than some of the unkind things one hears. If you’ve never smelled it before, it *is* strange (and often strong). I like it — and I think initial impressions of the odor do a lot to determine if you’ll like it or not. If it really does smell vile to one like sewage or something, then I think all hope is lost. A pity, as it really does taste good, sweet with so many flavors, surprisingly delicate by comparison to how assertively pungent it is.

    • You’re truly right David. Durian is such a strange fruit. And yep, the first and the most crucial state that one must be able to surpass is to love it despite its smell.

      Thanks for the visit!
